Are There Any Amharic Radio Stations in Washington, D.C.?

While there are no 24/7 radio stations broadcasting in Amharic from Washington, WUST 1120 AM has an extensive Amharic program broadcast twice a week. Voice of America Amharic is another Amharic radio service that is produced and broadcast in Washington.

WUST 1120 AM is a community radio station in the Washington/Baltimore area that serves a variety of ethnic groups. On Saturday and Sunday nights, the programming is entirely dedicated to the region's Ethiopian community and features Amharic language shows such as "Addis Dimts," "Hagr Fikr" and "Embilta Radio." Voice of America Amharic, by contrast, is not a station but an Amharic program produced in Washington that listeners can hear online and on various radio channels throughout the world.
